Determined to convince their friend, Isabelle, that she is better off without her two-timing boyfriend, Shawn Littig (aka Sluttig), Lane and Vivi decide to construct a MySpace page for the perfect boyfriend. The only problem is that he exists only in their minds. Lane’s younger brother, Marshall, who helps pen the responses to Isabelle, is taking things a little too seriously. But there is hardly enough time for Lane and Vivi to worry about the outcome of their scheme: Prom is only weeks away and they have their own boy troubles. Lane has a crush on Curtis, her BFF, and Vivi goes through boys at a blistering pace. A fun story of three friends trying to survive those last few tumultuous weeks of high school—what it loses because of predictability, it makes up for with its humor and its fast pace. (Fiction. YA)
